NSBA’s annual fly-in known as the Washington Presentation was back in full force this year after a 2-year hiatus. More than 150 small-business owners made their way to Washington, D.C., to meet with lawmakers on the trials and tribulations of small business ownership.
NSBA Member Andrew Weins, of Wisconsin, takes a second between Hill meetings with staff from the offices of Senator Ron Johnson and Representative Glenn Grothman to snap a quick small-business selfie. Thank you to GreenUp Solutions for sparing Andrew for the trip and thank you to all of the Members of Congress and their stellar staff for meeting with the NSBA delegation to discuss the importance of strong support for small business on both sides the aisle on Capitol Hill.
While Sen. Ben Cardin’s (D-Md.) office was unable to host an in-person meeting, they met with the NSBA delegation from Maryland to talk about the important things their office is doing to support small business.
